Merry Christmas Things.

Top 5 things my students have said to me this year:

1.  Student: Mrs. Ostrom, your hair looks…

Me: different?

Student: No, more like it got struck by lightning.

2.  “Dad?

…I mean, Mrs. Ostrom?”

3.  “My hero is myself because I’m creative. And I like loft beds.”

4.  Student 1: My favorite subject is art, science, and math.
Student 2: My favorite subject is reading.
Student 3: My favorite subject is pugs.

5.  “Mrs. Ostrom, why do you have a mustache?”

Top 1 thing I plan on doing for the rest of 2011:

Fireplace and computer screen in a dark room.

What you can see here is our newly functional fireplace and our high-class “TV”.

What you can’t see is the jumbo cookie tin right in between us.  But it’s there.  It’s definitely there.

Merry Christmas to all of you crazy Pinch of Yum readers!  Here’s to cozy nights by the fire, cookies and hot chocolate, family and friends, and peace, hope, and perfect love.
